“A terrifying moral thriller which combines brilliant theatricality with clear thought and fierce compassion” THE SUNDAY TIMES
Death & The Maiden
Ariel Dorfman's explosive, award-winning drama is set in a country only recently returned to democracy after emerging from a totalitarian dictatorship. Gerardo Escobar has been chosen to head the commission that will investigate the crimes of the old regime. When his car breaks down he is given a lift home by Doctor Roberto Miranda. But, in the voice of this good Samaritan, Gerardo's wife, Paulina Salas, thinks she recognizes the man who raped and tortured her as she lay blindfolded in a military detention centre years before. Is this her opportunity for terrifying revenge?
This white knuckle thriller is a riveting, intellectual and emotional tug of war.
